Independent MP to join Lintner's ANO Caucus

INDEPENDENT MP Herman Arvay, a former Communist Party (KSS) member, will probably join the ANO caucus led by Ľubomír Lintner, the TASR news agency reported.

"We have discussed this for several weeks. The discussion began before the coalition crisis started. I think that the time is now right to conclude our negotiations and take this step," Arvay told TASR on September 18. He added that he has had a very close relationship with the ANO caucus for a long time.

Lintner said that his caucus has also been holding negotiations with other Independent MPs. However, he refused to reveal their names.

Slovakia's minority governing coalition is struggling to gain the support of 76 MPs needed to form the simple majority needed to open a parliamentary session. The coalition still lacks four votes to be able to do this. Lintner's group of MPs, which refused to support the ANO party chairman when he was dismissed from his post of economy minister recently, is backing the coalition.
